WWII German Panzer tank driver jacket meets motorcycle jacket.
A unique coat for a unique client, who dictated the design features. Felted wool with some postmodern details, a navy silk lining and collar facing. 2013.
Custom tailoring details on this piece include:
Welt pockets with ballistic nylon pocket interiors for strength and longevity (you know how annoying it is when inferior pocket linings get holes in them).
True vented sleeves to button and unbutton (non-skeumorph stuff here). Intentionally asymmetrical lengths, so one sleeve vent is longer than the other.
A removable, half capelet that attaches with snaps at the collar.
Belt buckle beautifully engraved for us with the client’s initials by fine artist, Timm Paxton.
Each project bears our famous Salt Lake Slipcover label, championed by our area’s top interior designers, architects, decorators and space planners.
You don’t have to rent a truck or move your furniture. Unlike new upholstery, your new slipcover’s custom draping and cutting can all be done in your home or office. We can come to you. Then we return in 10 – 12 days (or sooner, at an expedited rate) to deliver and install your new slipcovers. 15+ years’ experience creating these and we are the top maker on the Wasatch Front as well as in the San Francisco and California central coast regions. They are classy, custom fitted and expertly tailored. Think of your new slipcovers as beautiful custom fashion for your furniture.
You get the idea, right?
